I think my kids need to hang out with someone else. We are taking a much needed family evening this weekend to do something....most likely shopping and Sky Zone. I'm not sick of them - but I think they are sick of each other and me. If they aren't at school - they are together 98% of the time. They never had this much time together before.
Keagan seems fine - although he has been much crankier lately. I think he just misses his guy time - it is obvious that he craves that any time he is around another male adult. I know that he has to drive them nuts - but he used to get that every day and now he doesn't - so he's a little more obnoxious the few times that this does happen.
Malea is just all over the place. I scheduled an appointment for another therapist for her. She doesn't want to go - but I have to figure out if we can help her at all. I wish I could have someone I could just have take her out for an evening or something. Next week I'm thinking of taking her to a mystery dinner - but she'll likely be the only kid - so I don't know if she'll like that. She used to have plenty of times where she'd go with Dave somewhere or with me shopping. Keagan is a pain to shop with - so we haven't gone much lately.
Then there is me - I've seriously thought about going to hang out at a bar just to see if someone would talk to me. I'll never do it - but it certainly has been on my mind!
Ending with positives....
Keagan had his valentine's party yesterday - he really loved that! They had a frozen yogurt sundae party. I was able to take in some ice cream for Keagan and he said it was so much fun. His teacher always makes sure to ask me about what alternatives we can do for him. She also does some really fun things - I'm going to miss her when he's done with Kindergarten!
Malea was supposed to have the AWANA Grand Prix this week. Due to her being sick last week - I still had her run in when Keagan went and the cars were sold out. They told her she could use an old one. I had one that I actually won 2nd place with so she was going to use that. She couldn't find it though and wasn't fine with the color and didn't have time to paint it - so she decided not to go. I was sad since this was her last year. She did always get mad that she never won - so maybe it was good we didn't participate this year. She is caught up on almost all her work after being out for almost a full week of school! She has a few more things to catch up on - but that should be able to be done with this 4 day week:) Her eyes are bothering her so I really need to get her in to the eye place - go figure that she has a few more contacts left - but she can't wear them now. I'm hoping this means her eyes are improving....they've been getting worse every year and they said eventually they would slow down and stop.
I've done well with my eating and working out this week. I didn't work out last night -but did work on some demo work at the house. I'll just trade my last night and double up this weekend. Tonight I may be home late - we'll see - so hoping to try to get it in today. I already feel better doing the workouts - less tired. Hoping I can stick with it!
